About this show

After a smash-hit run off-Broadway, Harvey Fierstein's Torch Song heads to Broadway for a strictly limited engagement. This critically acclaimed production of the Tony Award-winning comedy stars Drama Desk Award winner Michael Urie (Ugly Betty) and Academy Award and Tony winner Mercedes Ruehl (The Fisher King) and is directed by Tony nominee Moisés Kaufman (The Laramie Project).

Hilarious and heart-wrenching, Torch Song follows Arnold Beckoff's odyssey to find happiness in New York. All he wants is a husband, a child, and a pair of bunny slippers that fit, but a visit from his overbearing mother reminds him that he needs one thing more: respect.

Join Arnold on this all too human journey about the families we're born into, the families we choose, and the battles to bring them all home.
